This amp is absolutely the most versatile and tone-capable amp I have ever played. I was completely taken aback by the amount of raw power and flexibility of tone. This is a two-channel amp (Clean and Lead), but with the voicing switches, it behaves like a five channel amp. The Clean channel has a 3-band EQ with Volume and a voicing switch for either Modern or Vintage tones. The modern switch is more bass heavy and fat while the vintage switch gives more of a clean and bright tone. I can honestley say that this is the best Clean tone I have ever heard. The Lead channel is my favorite. It provides the widest array of tones imaginable due to the 3-band EQ, Gain, and 3 voicings on this channel. The lowest position on the voicing switch is the Vintage sound. This is excellent for achieving light distortion tones (i.e. The Who). The next voicing is modern, which kicks out some of the most thickest and smoothest distortion tones available. This is awesome for playing many of the heavy metal and hard rock tones today. The last voicing is the high-gain setting. This gives you an over-the-top sound that is full of sustain and crunch. This setting sounds similarly close to Motley Crue and Pearl Jan like tones. This amp also features a master section that contains a wonderful reverb, presence, and dynamics controls. It also features a resonance switch that can successfully recreate the sound of a smaller amp or add more bass to simulate a larger cabinet. One last thing; this amp is LOUD! Cover your ears and stand back because you will be absolutely blown away by all of this amp's power and features.

I found that this amp may be ok for people who like to play one or two styles but it doesn't work for me. It just doesn't have the versatility that I need. They call it transtube, but I don't feel the warmth in this amp. The fact that there are 3 distortions is cool, but you have to physically go to the amp everytime you want to change the distortion. At least you do on the Bandit 112 I have. I also found that the distortions weren't warm enough for my liking, they were too harsh and tinny sounding with my guitar. No, this amp just doesn't cut it for me. I have to fiddle around with the settings to make it sound just the way I want it.

Peavey 112 Bandit II

By PunkPlague

from Black Mountain, NC

Buy it and fall in love. It has a great clean sound and is great for any acoustic electric.. but more importantly for me it is great for playing heavily distorted music without ANY effects.. I have taken this thing everywhere and banged it into so much stuff I swear it should have broken by now. This is great for small to medium sized shows when you don't want to carry a huge amp around and you don't really need it. Another think I like is all the plug-ins and it plays great for any bass or guitar.


Great Amp

By PeaveyEXP Player88

from Rogers,AR

See all my reviews

Great looks,great distortion, and great tonal possibilities, straight up great amp. Good for practicing, but even better if you're in a band, this amp sounds so amp I've ever owned, could use some digital fx though, but the included footswitch made up for it. for only $380 you can't go wrong.



By Eddies King

from Rockford, IL

This amp is amazing. It goes from playing heavy metal to play blues at the flip of a switch. It also sounds like a tube amp without the price of it. Its perfect for anyone thats looking for a tube amp sound and works great with any style of guitar playing.


More than you figure

By John-qV3mB

This thing rocks... LOUD ! The vintage clean with a slow Flanger sounds so much like early Metallica clean it's unbelievable. The lead channel is nice too, but it's been a trick getting this thing under control. Anyone who reveiws this amp and says "for small venues" is an idiot. You can play stadiums with this puppy ! (you'd have to PA any other amp you'd play through anyway) Should have the neighbors upset.


Possibly the best Solid State amp I've ever heard!

By JakeCohen

from Ontario, CAN

I just bought this amp a while ago, and I must say, it is amazing! I love the tone on this thing, the distortion is SICK. I love this amp, and I strongly recommend it. It's good for small to medium sized shows, also. The price is awesome.


Awesome Distortion!!!

By gnrsz720

from West Monroe, LA

This is a great amp and well worth the money. The two clean channels (Vintage & Modern) are great. The three ditortion channels (Vintage, Modern, & High-Gain) are AWESOME! This is the BEST amp I've ever played with.

I have had this amp for about 1 and a half years.... its ok.... the distortion is pretty good... the clean works ok. I think its an average amp. Nothing special, nothing bad.



By Dakota-w8lIu

This amp has the best distortion i have ever heard in person for metal. If you set the three band EQ to the "scoop pattern" ( Highs at ten, Mids at ZERO, and lows at ten ) You will get an AMAZING sounding distortion. The low end on this amp is just incredible it shakes the ground and the Seffield speaker can take it. This amp is also sturdy as a rock and will really take a beating. Buy this amp, you will really love it, and of coarse blow all your friends away.


Footswitchable Effects Loop

By LesJacobPaul

from Undisclosed

The title says it all, you cannot beat that, if you run a digitech rp multi-effects pedal through it, you can go from, peavey clean to peavey distortion to Digitech effects, and back to the amps perfect distortion, plus its loud for a 112, very loud, and the wattage doesnt really mean anything, but think about it, a 212 will over power a 112, but this thing is amazing for any price range.


Greatest solid state ever

By Mike-TR0P_

from Pittsburgh, PA

My first amp, and I've never played anything I liked better - that includes expensive Marshalls! The tone is extremely versatile, perfect for anything from jazz to classic rock, to metal. All it needs is a 4X12 cab, and guess what - this amp is designed to be used with one!!


Bandit II

Great amp. Footswitch has a cheap feel and look to it. However, it does the job!


An okay practice amp...but it falls short on stage

By Vintage Junkie

from Green Bay WI

See all my reviews

I've owned one for about two years and it was satisfying in my basaement. when my band began gigging, however, it fell short to my friend's randall half-stack and our sound was unbalanced. the rhythm section of our songs was drowned out by the bass and p.a. it was very depressing when people came up after the show and said "you were great! but i didn't hear your part..." yea whatever. get it if you are on a budget and need a practice amp with just a drummer.


Look Further!

By Davey_Jack

from Qc, Canada

First, I'll explain the situation. I bought this amp a few years ago. I really loved it. But I bought it in an hour. DO NOT DO THAT! Always try all the amps that could be good for you. By the time I've bought it, i tried lots of other amps and really I've not make a bad choice, but maybe not the better for what I needed. Let's review some features:-The clean channel is pretty good, and sounds nice with reverb ( I would have put footswitchable reverb)-The distortion channel sounds nice, and you can get very nice sound from it-This amp has very low presence, I play in a band and I'm always too high or to low-This amp is called "Trans-tube", it has a nice tone, but if you want real tube tone, buy a mesa or at least look for the Jo Sat headThis is a great amp for his price ( really cheap!)and I've trued it trough a 412, it sounds like an earthquake, but look further, you could get someting not really more expensive but maybe you'll be satisafied alot more


Good amp

By Our Bleeding Sin

from lehi, ut

See all my reviews

this is a great amp distortion is great but..there is always a buzz the reverb is alright although i dont use it much and the clean channel sounds good i would definently buy this amp if you have the money but if you want good quality and a great amp go with the fender 212r


I love this amp!!!

By Poetsessions

from Lubbock, Tx

See all my reviews

I have owned this amp for several years, and bought it with the intention to upgrade. I never did. I love the clean sound, and the stompbox delivers the best sounding distortion I have found. You could spend thousands on a stack, or amp this for a much better sound, and spend the rest on a better P.A. to mic it through. Just my humble opinion, but you cannot go wrong with this combo.


Excellent gain for hard rockers!

By Evan-idUfk

from Rochester, MN

This amp kicks some serious *** when it comes to gain - choose modern, hi-gain, or vintage, they all sound excellent! Metal heads will love the super crunch and wail of the modern, rock n roll fans should love the vintage, delivering tones identical to those of Oasis, Pearl Jam, and STP. Hi-Gain also offers some sweet tones for both genres. The clean channel is clean and prduces a nice crisp sound or a very dull smooth sound. Very nice, but by far the overdrive is the best part. Excellent amp for the price!


Amazing amp

By Wreslin jimmy

from Sullywood, USA

ALright some of you are thinking this is a small amp with just the single twelve. Looks can be decieving and this thing proves it! This amp is probably one of the best smaller amps I've ever played through and I haven't even taken up more than half way on the volume yet. It's that loud. I would recommend this amp to anyone, and I cant wait to hook up a 4x12 cab to it. Get one!
